Well I was afraid of overheating the plastic tank so I ended up setting my oven to 170 F, and baked it in the oven for 20 minutes periodically opening the door to release some heat to keep it from getting to hot. I put one oven rack on the top rack level of my oven, and used some scrap metal hooks to suspend the tank from its two bolt holes. By hanging it this way, it fits in a standard sized oven without touching any of the oven surfaces.

You (or your wife) aren't worried about the toxicity of the gases released from the paint onto the surface of your oven? I ask, because a few years ago I was dabbling in powdercoating, and numerous sites and suppliers warned against baking in ovens that would be used to cook food.

Thanks man, that's actually a really good point to consider.

I know that my tank wasn't getting too hot, or wasn't degassing (smelling) much anyways. Now I'm just talking out of my ass to some extent here, but my line of thinking is that the oven walls are going to be much hotter than the tank, so anything that came off the tank should have a hard time sticking to the hotter oven walls. I left the oven door open afterwards to air out and had no residual smells, so I feel fairly confident that there was no significant amount of deposition on the oven walls.

One week update

I mentioned above that I was somewhat concerned about how the paint would dry on the plastic tank, but one week in and the paint has definitely set up well. Clearly its a pretty slow cure, but the paint is solid now. I have a couple of blemishes from reinstalling the tank at 36 hours dry time. I would definitely recommend waiting longer, maybe 72 hours if possible, before reinstalling.
